Frocester Beer Festival... Fun, Beer, Friends!
Welcome to Frocester Beer Festival 2018!
This year, FBF takes place on Friday 24th August (2pm-11pm) and Saturday 25th August (11am-11pm).
Established in 1979, FBF is organised and run solely by volunteers. We are proud to have held the festival for 39 consecutive years now, donating all profits to great local causes. To date we have raised over £1.2 Million for local charities and the local cricket club, so thank you for your continued support!
We've been going for 39 years!
We started out 39 years ago as a small local beer festival, and have been growing at an impressive rate ever since.
FBF is proud to be one of the area’s most recognised beer and music festivals, and we now attract over 4,000 visitors annually, from near and far.
We welcome you across the two days to enjoy great beer, cider and wine, together with fantastic food and a diverse and high quality range of live music.
We even provide FREE overnight camping on-site, so you don’t have to miss a minute of the fun!
This year we’re even more excited than usual! We’ve got a fantastic music line up with brilliant headliners on both Friday and Saturday night who will really get you singing along! Plus all our bands are local this year – so come along and support your local musicians. You’ll be really impressed with how good they are!
As always, we’ve also got an amazing range of beers, ciders and wines – including over 150 different beers and ciders! And, back by popular demand, we’ve also got our Pimms & Prosecco bar again, so you’re definitely guaranteed not to go thirsty at FBF!
To complement all these lovely drinks, we’ve also got our usual choice of fantastic food, including pizzas, curries, burgers and hot dogs, as well as our famous hog roast pork rolls.
For families, we’ve got face painting for the kids (although adult visitors are welcome to get their faces painted too!), soft drinks and snacks. Note: It's also FREE admission for all Under 18s! However, please note that Under 18s will only be admitted when accompanied by an adult, and must be clear of the festival site by 6.30pm each evening.

Please note: The closing date for ordering 2018-branded glass FBF beer tankards was 30th June 2018.
Thank You Dear Sponsors!
There are many unpaid volunteers who give up their time freely for the festival, but we really couldn't get to where we are today without our fantastic sponsorship partners.
As always, a festival such as FBF could not operate without the support of corporate sponsors, so a big thank you to all our sponsors…
In particular, we'd like to thank Corinium Carpets, who are sponsoring our Main Stage again this year.
Corinium Carpets Ltd has been servicing Gloucestershire ever since the company was first founded in 1976. Although the company may have modernised since then, their customer service still uses the same principles; customers are expertly advised in an unbiased, relaxed environment, to help them select the flooring of their choice. This start-to-finish service means Corinium can supply and fit any flooring they sell. They are your 'one-stop shop' for all your flooring needs.
Other sponsors this year include:
Stock 'n' Lock
O'Brien & Price Stroud
Jason Roberts Fleming
Dursley Garden & Farm Machinery
Crazy Bird Comedy Club
Quattro Design Architects Ltd
Davis & Sons
Qishui Drinks Co.
We are always on the look-out for more partners, big or small, and we believe that you should decide where your money goes. So, if you want to donate £250 to put up a banner, or if you simply want to give £50 to have your name over a barrel, we would love to hear from you! Remember, no amount of contribution is too big or too small. Get in touch with us using the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, if you wish to volunteer at the festival, we never turn anyone away! Give us a call. We’d love to hear from you!
